    I was just thinking…Can we talk about Israel...Really?

    in Politics

    It’s funny how many of the commentary, news, and talk shows rarely let a black person talk about Israel and its politics.


    It’s like the subject is taboo for those of African descent, or we are viewed as too ignorant and primative to understand the complicated hostory and relationships of the State of Israel in the World and specifically in the Middle East. they believe "we don't have a dog in the fight", or simply we are sold-out to the "Christian" concept of; Whatever Israel does is in accordance to Biblical prophesy" and therefore we go along with the status quo of being on the side of the God of the Bible.


    Whatever the reaso for our voicelessness on the subject the fact is; our tax dollars go to Israel to the tune of 3 billion dollars a year with the reality being more like 15 million for its defense with governmental and social aide to the nation who is smack dab in the middle of the conflict that may cause WW3.


    Most of the black community is silenced because wedo not understand the financial toll our support to Israel in our day-to-day lives or we are too busy fighting about who's an Israelite and who's a Hebrew or the idea of Replacement Theology when we have already been replaced!


    We need to state the obvious: The State of Israel is the richest "state" in America and is no different than Alaska, Hawai’i and Puerto Rico in its geographical distance from Washington and the Unified States of America, and it has a quasi-religious state government that like the religous groups who run the deep southern states [like Texas or Alabama] are doing thier "own thing" no matter what Washington or the central government says!


    So, let's have a serious talk about the State of Israel shall we?

    Angela Davis

    in Politics

     "To understand recent responses to police violence against people of color, one must take a global and historical viewThe problem requires a broad approach, not confined to just the punishment of individuals, she said. Racism is not the product of an individual decision, but is produced by factors such as the war on terror and the militarization of the police, “Especially when you consider the fact that the majority of people in prison are there because society has failed them, because they have no access to education, to jobs, to housing, to health care”  Dr. Angela Davis


    Dr Davis the UC Santa Cruz emeritus professor spoke  at the Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium on “Racism, Militarism, Poverty: From Ferguson to Palestine,” Davis’s talk drew connections between King’s work and uprisings today, in response to recent police killings of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York.


    This program is a special  African History Month presentation from the Bostonred Network.

    Militarism & Capitalism's Impact on the African Diaspora

    in News

    We are joined this episode by Malcolm X Grassroots Member, Kali Akuno, to discuss the deleterious impact of Euro-American Imperialism, Militarism and Capitalism on Africa and her Diaspora. Kali Akuno will also connect the dots from Militarism to the plague of police brutality throughout the United States where in 2012 there we (AT LEAST) 313 black people murdered by police, law enforcement, or white vigilantes, as well as the most recent developments regarding this issue. Mr. Akuno will also break down the recent guide (Let Resistance Be Your Motto) for self defense, authored by MXGM, and why it is a vital tool for the self-defense of Africans/black people. Please tune in to this important show. Change starts with our overall education of these critical issues.

    The Realm of Hungry Ghosts in the Post JFK Era

    in Politics Progressive

    Buddhism and Taoism have a belief system that roughly translates to "hungry Ghosts" in the West.  It embodies the idea that people can damage their spiritual self by doing evil to others. Some societies believe that this spiritual damage can be passed on to the person's descendants.  In the next two hours we will explore this concept in relation to collective delusional processes in the US. We will also trace a critical path of the three seeds of destruction sewn into the foundation of the American Republic from the very beginning at Jamestown.  These three seeds, racism, genocide, and militarism, reached a crescendo when JFK was assassinated and the pace has accelerated since that pivotal event.


    Feel free to call in and join the discussion!

    Ferguson and America's Hidden Fascist Agenda

    in Politics Progressive

    Ferguson did not come out of nowhere.  America has had a hidden agenda since the 1600s of racism, genocide, and militarism that can be traced on a critical path to the present.  This critical path is the course we are on today, and it has to be understood that the country needs a new direction and transformational leadership to get there.  Today we will shine a flashlight on the above seeds of destruction sown into the foundation of the American empire from the very beginning:



    Racism, Genocide, and Militarism from the beginning to the present.
     The Evolution of Fascism in America.
    Operation Paperclip, the New Jim Crow, and the Prison Industrial Complex.
    Bioweapons, the JFK Assassination, and the People's Temple.
    Global Pandemics, Agribusiness, and Africa.


    As always, you are cordially invited to call in.

    Monsters from the Id in the Post JFK Era

    in Politics Progressive

    Collective unconscious is a part of analytical psychiatry developed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961).  The idea simply put is that all of us have a collective unconscious memory of our past, and that we use this to make sense out of our environment.  Could it be that encoded in us is a memory of the persistent idea that evil is "out there" and in "the other?" My first book traced racism, genocide, and militarism back to the first little colony in Jamestown, Virginia, and followed these on a critical path through the entire history of America. US history has been a constant and continuous quest to destroy and conquer evil to the west.


    Did our collective unconscious murder those that impeded this westward expansion, as in JFK MLK, RFK, Malcolm X and many others?


    Is it a player now in our continuous wars against endless evil?


    Did we imagine, create, and nurture the endless evil "out there" without knowing it?


    Was George W. Bush emblematic of a people who refuse to see evil in themselves and project evil "out there?"


    We will explore these ideas in this episode. Please call in and join the discussion!

    WWIII FLASHPOINT UKRAINE

    in Politics

    Program Summary 30 Jan. 2015


    Hear today from Maria Gilardin's outstanding autonomous TUC Radio on "How the West Caused the Crisis in Ukraine" a two-part 30 min. each series of programs just released from her extensive archives.  Brian Lawless RFK's anti-austerity news analyst will be discussing the recent developments across the EU.


    The TUC radio segment(s) summarized: In January 2015 Evanston Neighbors for Peace organized an event with two eminent speakers, John Mearsheimer, Professor at the University of Chicago and Rick Rozoff the foremost investigator of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Prof. Mearsheimer spoke about the origins of the crisis and how to avert the ever heightening risk of war between the United States and Russia. ... John Mearsheimer is Professor of Political Science and the co-director of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago. Rick Rozoff spoke on January 10, 2015, along with Professor John Mearsheimer from the University of Chicago, at a meeting of the Evanston Neighbors for Peace in Chicago. It is widely acknowledged that the expansion eastward of NATO - the North Atlantic Treaty Organization - is a major provocation of Russia and a huge and under-reported factor in the origins and the conduct of the war in Ukraine. Few investigative journalists follow the day to day politics of NATO - that are directed largely by the US - as closely as Rick Rozoff. He is the manager of the organization Stop NATO International and has been an active opponent of war, militarism and intervention for over 40 years. He writes on the threat of international militarization, especially on the globalization of NATO. Rozoff blogs at https://rickrozoff.wordpress.com/

    Martin Luther King: Was His "A Time to Break Silence" Address His Death Warrant?

    in Politics Progressive

    Martin Luther King was assassinated because he threatened power. In my book I wrote what that power was, and still is.  In these two hours we will take a close look at the assassination, and the dark forces behind it:



    The National Security State, the Fourth Branch of Government.
    Unchecked and Unconstitutional Power
    A Democracy or a Fascist Tyranny?
    "A Time to Break Silence" or "Beyond Vietnam"


    Today we have Martin Luther King Day, but listen carefully to what is said and what is not said on this day. Rarely do we see or hear anything about what he really said and what should be his legacy.  Your host Bob Kirkconnell will go into it in these two hours.  Call in.  Love to hear from you!!
